Disable SMT / HT at boot time using the kernel command line parameter nosmt:
nosmt [KNL,S390] Disable symmetric multithreading (SMT).
Equivalent to smt=1.
[KNL,x86] Disable symmetric multithreading (SMT).
nosmt=force: Force disable SMT, cannot be undone
The fans (654752-001) are ~$10 each.
It would behoove you to replace the failed units.
You can flip the BIOS option to allow operations with reduced fan count after you replace the fans.
DL360p Gen8 servers tend to lose these fans as they age. I keep 20 spare fans on hand at my datacenter because of this.
Your remote hands pricing and support needs were ...
I want to absolutely confirm the same scenario. Running pfSense on VMware where the upload bandwidth would be painfully slow while download was just fine. For us, it was ONLY if the pfSense VM and the guest VMs were on the same host. When the pfSense VM and host VM were on a different host the problem went away. When disabling the offloads on the pfsense VMs ...
Your use of non-HPE disks is a cause because they're not reporting proper temperatures to the RAID controller.
The ILO controls thermal settings on this platform and the hysteresis curves that govern fan speeds.
I commissioned the work of a developer who wrote a machine-language hack that exposes ILO fan controls to the SSH command line. This ...
HPE changed the design of the HDD carriers from Gen8 onwards. The carrier is called a 'Smart Carrier'. It has a small chip which logs the entire life of the HDD, and then the data is used to identify the failure details in the factory.
The SAS drives till Gen7 were interchangeable with older generations, however it is NOT recommended to use HDDs from Gen7 ...
You only have one logical drive and zero free space.
That's why you can't shrink the array.
There is a "consolidatespace" command that rearranges logical drives to leave free space at the end, but the mistake in your environment was creating a logical drive that spans the entire array.
Here's an example of an environment where I can shrink...
If the link to download firmware are dead, your only hope is to get your hand on a Proliant Support Pack that does support your server hardware.
I don't have my HPe login near, but check there for older version of it;
HP Service Pack for ProLiant
As staten in comments, please advice your customer.
You have a failed drive and a failing drive. Replace both.
Storage media wears out relatively quickly, even when handled properly. And if these drives are the same vintage as the server they are aging.
For "is this circuit safe" ask an electrician. Seriously, electrical fires are no joke, and some old wiring is terrifying.
Regarding a rough estimate on draw, that's not how redundant power supplies work. Properly sized, each could carry the load of the system if the other failed. For what that load is, make an estimate with component ...
You need to download the Ubuntu Server installation image to install Ubuntu to an HP Smart Array controller. This image contains the necessary hpsa driver, but the regular live image, intended for desktops, does not.
I found the newest quickSpecs and it mentions that this particulate model supports up to 6 cores and Intel® Xeon® E-2236 is on the supported CPU list.
I believe I found a solution. I contacted technical support and was told that the Service Pack for Proliant didn't support the HP Proliant Gen10 Microserver, only the Gen10 Plus Microserver. As such I was directed to "System Firmware Upgrade for HPE MicroServer Gen10 Server with UEFI".
Something userful to note is that inside the Built-in UFEI ...
You're more likely looking at that ~130-150W power consumption at idle, and ~230-280W under full load. An average usage would be per month about 170W*730h/1000 = 124kWh. So depending on your load, it's somewhere between 100kWh(idle)-160kWh(bigger load) per month.
Here's a more detailed answer
A HP DL380 (certainly some older generations, probably G8 also) can have different fan configurations.
With a minimum number of fans, it might run them with slightly higher RPM at ”steady state” and will need to shut down if any fan fails. In this configuration, the fan slots for the missing fans may be blocked to ensure the air will flow only in the desired ...
Servers are loud. They are designed to operate in data centers where noise isn't an issue. When running a server at home (I do as well), you'll need to expect them to be very loud and plan accordingly.
Server fans are optimized for performance. Desktop fans on the other hand are designed for a compromise of performance and sound.
Your fans are probably ...
You can use Ansible to boot your machines from network through their HP iLO interfaces, by using "python-hpilo" module.
In order to do that you can use some Ansible roles such as:
- name: boot from netwrok through HP iLO interface only if the system is an HP server
force: yes #make sure what you are doing, it will reboot a running machine
HPE's SPP is Support Pack for ProLiant which contains the necessary drivers, firmware, BIOS/EFI, HPE tools and other software to keep your server up to date.
The SPP contains the HPE Smart Update Manager which discovers your server hardware and OS, analyzes the current installed versions of the FW, drivers and tools, and then recommends updates required.
This is an easy question for once :)
You can deploy individual firmware versions to all of the various components in a server - the BIOS, PSUs, disks, NICs etc. - it definitely works.
However not all versions are designed to work with each other, an SPP fixes this by upgrading all components to compatible versions in one go so you don't get mis-matches.
Unfortunately, it's a common issue when using different HDD types and/or vendors.
Exact size of the disk can vary for a few kilobytes, but that's enough for such error.
AFAIK ssacli/acucli doesn't show the exact size in bytes.
You can try using smartctl, it can read SMART data on disks beyond SmartArray:
# smartctl -d sat+cciss,0 -i /dev/cciss0 | grep "...
Unfortunately, you are neither mentioning a specific server model nor a specific controller, thus I'm assuming Smart Arrays here. HP/HPE Smart Array RAID controllers provide a battery-backed cache to e.g. temporarily store data before transferring them to disks. The cache is DRAM, thus it's a lot faster than typical disk drives, and this speeds up e.g. write ...
If you remove the battery, shortcircuit the 2 connections inside of the battery holder (the HOLDER, NOT the battery itself!) for ~10 seconds.
In most cases, this will make sure that the CMOS doesn't get power anymore and looses it's content.
Did you try to use ipmitool?
$> ipmitool lan print
That should give you some IPMI output. You can boot almost any Linux from a LiveCD/Stick and just install ipmitool. I once had a HP ML110 G6 and was able to restore access to my iLO 100 through ipmitool.
